Many Marion Philharmonic Orchestra supporters, as well as, Grant County community members enjoyed the two outdoor ensemble concerts last fall: The strings concert at Upland’s Depot Park and the marimba concert, also at the Depot Park, according to board vice president LaRea Slater.

“If you enjoyed those concerts, you will enjoy the ‘Woodwind Quintet’ concerts that are planned for the next two weekends,” said Slater.

Both concerts will be at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 11 and Sunday, April 18.

These two free concerts, with donations encouraged, will be held at one of the newer venues in Marion: the Sender Building, in the Reception Room at 100 S. Washington St.

Musicians participating will be Trudy Whitford on flute, George Donner on oboe, Chris Bade on clarinet, Mike Trentacosti on bassoon and Suzanne Rice on the horn.
